Bollywood superstar Arbaaz Khan is set to star in Priya Varrier’s Hindi debut which is eager to star the actor in his thriller suspense “Sridevi Bungalow” that has been all over the news since a while. It is pertinent to note that Arbaaz’s other film, the Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3 is already under production but the former has agreed to take his role in “Sridevi Bungalow” along with ‘wink girl’ Priya Varrier in the titular role.
It is also important to mention that this movie is not related to Sridevi.
“In the film, Arbaaz ji plays a Bollywood superstar and his character is very important to the script. I really like him and think he suits the part well. In fact, he is called Arbaaz Khan in the film too. We have finished 80 percent of the shoot and the remaining will be filmed in Mumbai in July,” said Prasanth as he confirmed the news to a foreign media outlet.
The director further added that, “It is a suspense thriller with lots of mysteries and is not related to Sridevi. I had been busy writing this script for the last two years and even tried to cast Kangana Ranaut for the lead role but she couldn’t do the film because of her hectic schedule. I think Priya is apt for the character and has played the role well. I had selected her bearing in mind that the film can be released in South India as well.”
Prasanth also revealed that Priya, who goes to London to shoot for a film, plays an actress named Sridevi in the film. The turn of events in London changes her life.
“We have received a legal notice from (Late) Sridevi’s husband which instructs that Sridevi’s name must not be used or her biopic should not be made. But there are so many people named Sridevi and I cannot change my movie’s name. I have sent a reply to the notice stating all these things and I am yet to receive a response,” he stated.
